The new BCS formula is out and I have to agree with the opinion at CollegeFootballNews (exercise caution in following link, this site seems to have really aggressive popup ads):
bq. AP writers and college football coaches don’t watch a wide enough range of college football games to be able to cast a qualified vote. Coaches spend all of their time on their game and don’t have a second to spend watching other teams, and AP voters spend their time on the games they’re covering and trying to reach deadlines.
It is going to be another controversy-filled year in college football — and maybe that is what keeps the game interesting.
